With so many major issues confronting our country, it may seem silly to care about such a small issue - but as a farm girl, I understand the potential a seed has. My concern is simple, it's local, and it affects people in their neighborhoods: It is the disappearance of checkout clerks in grocery stores and box stores. I have refused to use "self-checkout" at stores since it first appeared. First, I do not wish to train to be a cashier (clearly it's a job without much of a future). Second, I am not offered a discount to do so. And most important, by using self-checkout, I effectively would cut the hours of work available to people in my community.
